Both the Equine Technical Team and Animal Unit Technical Specialist Amy Horne have been shortlisted for the award.

They will attend an awards ceremony at the 2019 Higher Education Technicians Summit (HETS 2019), which is taking place at the University of Birmingham on 25 June.

Amy and the Equine Technical Team were nominated for the award online by fellow colleagues, and were then shortlisted as finalists.

The Papin Prizes recognise the skills, talent and experience of technicians in higher education and research across the UK and Ireland.

They are open to technicians across all disciplines with awards across a range of categories, and aim to share best practice amongst higher education technical staff.

Speaking about the Papin Prizes, Dr Helen Turner, Director of Midlands Innovation said: “The roles that technicians do, usually behind the scenes, is vital in ensuring the success of our universities and research institutes, providing academic, research and student colleagues with the essential technical expertise that they need to enable their research and teaching.

“It is essential that we highlight and recognise their contributions and the Papin Prize offer a prestigious opportunity to do that.”

Cat Sanderson, School Technical Manager, added: “Thank you to everyone who nominated technical colleagues for the Midlands Innovation Papin Prizes. We are proud that both Amy Horne and the Equine Technical Team have been shortlisted as finalists for these awards.”
